We couldn't have asked for a better clinic visit! Ben weighs 13.2 lbs which puts him in the 50 percentile, exactly where we want him! He is 24 inches long which is also in the 50 percentile. His culture came back all clear of any bad bacteria which means that we not only got rid of the yucky stuff from last month but he also didn't pick up anything new! His CF team is SO pleased with his progress and proud of Ryan and I. Ben's doctor even told us we could drop one of the bottle feedings but I prefer to keep going with what's working. He is now on Zantac to help with his spitting up and to help the enzymes work a little better. I plan on starting him on non-Rx probiotics because I have done some research on them and think they will be beneficial. We won't need to go back to UCSF for two months because Ben is doing so well. Keep up the prayers, God is blessing us!
Ben's current meds list:
Vitamins ADEK- 1ml once a day
Zantac- 1 ml twice a day
2-3 bottles of breast milk with added formula plus 4-5 breast milk feedings a day
